The Office of Graduate Financial Aid is available to assist students in helping them pay for a graduate education. Students wishing to receive federal financial aid must be enrolled either half time (5-8 credits) or full time (9 or more credits) each semester. Students enrolled in 4 credits or less are considered less than half time and would only be eligible for private educational loans.

Students applying for financial aid must annually complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at and the Quinnipiac University Financial Aid application (download from To be considered for university grant funds, completion of the Quinnipiac University Grant application at (grants are awarded to students demonstrating high financial need) is required.

In addition, students must meet university program requirements including making satisfactory academic progress (SAP) which includes passing 67 percent of all coursework attempted each semester and maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or better. Failure to meet these guidelines may result in not being eligible for aid.
